Windows Process Activation Services Overview

What is Windows Process Activation Services?
Windows Process Activation Service generalizes the Internet Information Services (IIS) process model, removing the dependency on HTTP.

IIS 7.0 also uses Windows Process Activation Service for message-based activation over HTTP.
